My husband, daughter, I stayed at the Grotto Bay in August. The location is very nice and most of the staff are fantastic, Juneann and Esme, especially.
The beach is great. The water is calm and beautiful and the ship wreck out front makes for a nice snorkle. The fact that they charge for the waterslide is laughable and just plain wrong!
I had read the other reviews about the bedlinens so I was not surprised by them. They are in need of replacement and an update.
There is a lot of walking around the resort. We found it pleasant, however we noticed some of the elderly folks having a bit of trouble. They do have a shuttle which will pick you up and take you where you need to go.
The public transportaion is great. Easy to use, and right out in front of the hotel. The bus driver will let you know where you need to get off if you tell them your destination. The locals are very friendly, as well and they will help if needed.
Do go to the Swizzle Inn for a meal or a drink. The food is very good and less expensive than the hotel. If you plan on eating in the hotel, make sure to get dinner reservations. We ran into a bit of difficulty one evening (our fault,not the hotel) when we did not have a reservation for dinner. We found the food to be ok, not great at the hotel. The service was always good.
